Showtime Renews Drama Series TVLine
A Showtime drama series has been picked up by the pay-cable channel for another season. TVLine.com reports that Showtime renewed “Penny Dreadful” for season two.
The show's second season will include 10 episodes, two more than its current freshman season.
“Picking up ‘Penny Dreadful’ was one of the easiest decisions I’ve made,” Showtime President David Nevins said in a statement. “[Series creator] John Logan has deftly created an epic series that has drawn raves from a wide range of audiences from quality drama lovers to critics, to hardcore genre fans.”
